I know of a medallion that has recently been found. It is in poor condition, yet as I am a coin collector, an not a collector of medallions, I am unsure of its worth. Is it possible that you could give me a rough approximation, if possible, of its value. It is the one that is described as above. Centenary of South Australia, Australia, 1936 (AD)Thank you in advance. Jill Bajut

I am also interested as I have just found one of these medallions in my grandfathers possessions. It is in excellent condition with the original chain.
